Title: The Case of the Wicked Web
A picture tells a thousand … lies
As plucky photojournalist in the Middle East, Ryanne Dax has negotiated with desert warlords and eaten sheep’s head. But nothing prepares this human/gremlin mix for the family’s real business.
At her aunt’s cryptic plea, Ryanne returns to the Alaskan hometown she fled decades earlier. Only to find her eccentric relative missing and accused of unleashing a lethal enchantment.
With the help of an intrepid welsh corgi, a vampire drag queen, and a garden gnome addicted to Shakespearean insults, Ryanne pursues every lead ignored by the sheriff.
Except, more bodies drop and the video evidence implicates her aunt.
Now, Ryanne must race to untangle the web of family secrets, while dodging her werewolf ex and comforting a haiku-spouting espresso machine.
Can this misfit photographer develop a clear picture of the truth before the artifact kills again?
The Case of the Wicked Web kicks off the HAVEN: Alaska series set in the Finders-Keepers story-world.
If you enjoy a colorful cast of kitchen appliances, small town shenanigans, and a middle-aged, non-witch sleuth with more determination than a corgi smelling bacon, then you’ll love this paranormal cozy.
Buy your next wholesome read today and solve the riddle with Ryanne.

Don’t just consider what you should cut from your blurb. Make every piece of info earn its place.
